Banana Chocolate Chunk Bread

SoBA is a big fan of the banana.  He eats at least 1 or 2 a day.  We will often be getting ready to sit down to dinner and SoBA will ask for a snack - and the banana is a good option.  I have made my share of banana bread in the past, for if SoBA is off his game - there may be an overripe banana or two around the house.  I have posted banana bread recipes before, this is the classic go to that I use.

Here's one that uses parts of chocolate bars and cinnamon. From BuzzFeed via Unicorns in the Kitchen.  I won't tell the boys about the zucchini.
